Shipping a Outrigger Trailer

Outrigger Trailer Transport Services

Trailer Outriggers are used for trailers with wide wheels or heavy equipment. Because heavy equipment is hauled on outrigger trailer deck, the trailer width is typically 96" to 102".

Outrigger trailers have a vast variation in weight, making it impossible to estimate their weight. Shipping firms are often hired to transport outrigger trailers.

Depending on the route and the kind of vehicle used for the heavy hauling as well as the time necessary to deliver the goods, outrigger trailers can cost from $1.00 to $5.00 per mile.

Cost Shipping Factors for Outrigger Trailer

Outrigger trailer transportation costs are affected by a variety of factors. Among the factors that impact the final quote are when you need your goods delivered quickly, what insurance you want, and what type of transportation you prefer.

Transportation Speed

When calculating shipping fees, you will need to factor in how quickly you want your heavy equipment delivered. Getting the heavy equipment delivered faster will result in higher freight fees. In the event you wait, the standard rate for the service, or even a lower rate, will most likely apply. In order for the company to guarantee on-time delivery of your package, they will have to spend additional cash and effort to do so.


As a vehicle transportation company, it is essential that you have insurance coverage. Especially if the piece of equipment is huge and worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, this is especially relevant. Businesses involved in heavy equipment transport are required by law to secure insurance. In addition, you may also be able to obtain insurance for your heavy equipment while it is being transported.

Transportation Method

Depending on the kind of transportation you choose, the cost of transporting large equipment will vary significantly. There is a difference in prices between different modes of transportation, which is passed on to the customer. The more expensive the mode of transportation, the higher the price. Land, sea, and air travel are all available to you.

What to Look for in a Heavy Equipment Shipping Company

Several heavy equipment shipping companies will ship your outrigger trailer. Depending on your needs, you can determine which one is the best. The best shipping company will depend on your specific requirements.

Find out if the company is licensed. In the US, licensing and regulations for transportation are dealt with by the Department of Transportation.

Before choosing a shipping company, ensure that it is licensed and regulated and has experienced loading crews. All the information you are looking for, including customer reviews, will be available if you conduct the search correctly. It is important to know what other people think about a company.

Preparing Your Outrigger Trailer for Shipping

  • Make sure your outrigger is free of debris.
  • Before transporting an outrigger trailer, it must be clean and in excellent working order.
  • Before transporting the outrigger trailer, it may need to be examined by a mechanic. Ensure the outrigger board lays perfectly on top of swing out or attached outriggers.
  • It is also critical to ensure that your equipment is appropriately insured.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
